Friday Mom has a beautiful post that mentions, towards the end, chocolate cake with white frosting.

Now I happen to love chocolate cake with white frosting and my mom's friend gave us a recipe for a triple-threat chocolate cake which almost could kind of count as home-made. Almost. But not quite.

Triple Threat, Almost Homemade But Not Quite, Chocolate Cake

1 Box Duncan Hines Devil's Food Cake
1 Box Non-instant Chocolate Pudding
4 Eggs
8 oz Sour Cream
1/2 Cup oil
1/2 Cup fresh brewed coffee
1 bag Nestle's Toll House Chocolate Chips
1 Can Vanilla frosting (or make it from scratch, whatever)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease your pan(s).

In a large mixing bowl mix all the ingredients (except for the chocolate chips) until smooth. Pour into pan(s). Pour chips into pans (try to distribute evenly). Bake until a toothpick poked it the center comes out clean (check a couple of places, you may hit a chocolate chip). Generally it takes about 5 - 10 minutes longer than the side of the cake mix box says it will take.

Let cool in the pans and then remove and let cool completely before you frost.

The original recipe called for dusting powdered sugar over it as a decoration, but come on....

I think my mom used to make something like this, only with cream cheese instead of sour cream, yum.

I am practically weeping with hunger right now. Do you ship?

That sounds very good and it is certainly home-made enough to call it that.

Salivating over here. I'm going to print this to make AFTER the weigh-in at WW tomorrow. Must. have. chocolate.

Friday Mom said...

Yeah, this counts as homemade. Wow! That sounds good....

Now I know what I am doing this weekend. Never mind that I have had cake every day for the last 2 weeks. Bring it on!

I'm making one too. I can't wait to see Muffin Man's face when he's had a taste of this.
